chicken skin…

jidori chicken cassoulette – all parts were utilized but it was a the skin that everyone remembers!!!

in my short time at mark’s new american cuisine i learned a lot, but mostly i learned that chef cox strives on total utilization.  nothing goes to waste in his kitchen, i mean nothing!!!  in fact, the words “total utilization is the key to success” is something i still say in the kitchen and it has become one of my many sayings…

fot the crispy chicken skin –

  • skin of one whole chicken
  • shiro shoyu
  • sugar


  1. remove skin
  2. marinade skin in shiro shoyu and sugar for 30 min

    One of the reasons WD-50 was such a great experience for me was because completely disparate ingredients came together to produce new textures and flavors, but also triggered a memory of something very familiar at the same time. The dish of smoked eel, blood orange “zest”, black radish and chicken skin tasted like nothing I have ever had before, but the streak of emulsified chicken skin immediately brought me back home to the essence of a perfectly roasted chicken on a Sunday night.

    I didn’t remember seeing the chicken skin in the description, so when I first tasted the dish I sat there for the longest time trying to figure out how Wiley made eel taste like comfort food. That’s good cooking, folks.
